most suburbs, actually still pretty clear sky. even here in philly, we call it partly cloudy at the moment. but with time, those clouds are going to take over, more at the skyline, and actually going to end up seeing couple of showers fire up out there. notice up across northeast most pennsylvania, it is actually coal enough to support even few snowflakes. so up in the mountains, could you see light wintery mix, but don't expect accumulation. meantime looking at the area temperature difference, you really haven't seen too much movement on the they are momper from this same time yesterday. but also, as the day goes on, those numbers here on the temperature change are actually going town crease, because we won't see much more warmth build in through the rest of the day, at best, i think, we get to the low or mid 50's, across the region as a whole. so it is actually cooler than average here today. it will even stay that way tomorrow before we begin to rebounds nicely, into next week. at the moment, it is not terribly breezy here on the skydeck, but do you have over the course after hour here reported at philadelphia international airport west to southwest winds flow at 20 miles per hour, so the
winds will be noticeable throughout the day. and we expect gusts that could peak as high as maybe 30 miles per hour, so at best, chilly spring afternoon for you, a lot of clouds, but you will see passing shower here and there. like i mention meisha i really don't think the rain gear is a necessity here today, the bulk happened yesterday, thankfully looks like much of the road has all dried out at this point. so what are you findin finding n your cameras? >> basically kate what i we're seeing as well, dry roadways everywhere which is such a nice welcome break f there is one day we want it, we want it on a friday just to go out in a good way. that looks to be the case. although we are starting to build levels in certain areas like 95 south, betsy ross bridge, you can see it is almost starting to look little busy, little residual congestion, all week talking wet roadways, leave early, and when we do that most people continue to do so even with dry roadways, can't say i blame them. i say good. leave early today. vine, westbound, looking good, eastbound side starting to heat up, overall looking

alive but just wishes his truck could have been as fortunate. the vehicle as you can see here burried under debris from the school and the storm's parking lot. >> hopefully he has comprehensive coverage. i'm over insured because i'm afraid of everything. hey, look, he's alive. >> do you believe that the worse will happen. you got to be prepared for that kind of stuff for sure. glad to hear he's okay. guys, cleaning up from the storminess of yesterday for sure, thankfully today looking like much quiet err day in terms of precipitation. now, there is a chill in the air for sure. this storm, a lot more than anything today, will lever behind the chill, and you will notice that throughout the course of the day, but interestingly, according to the eyewitness weather watchers, and also our data here, we are definitely off to a relatively mild start. the thing is you're not going to rebounds all that much, from where we stand right now. we at best get into the low or mid 50's, we've got generally mid who's around much of the region, actually, take you back and take a look at just couple of pictures that came
into us from yesterday's storm, jenny sent several in. you can see, the flooding, that took place, out in cherry hill, this is her yard, just puddles that formed. i had the same thing in my backyard, i'm sure you did, as well, where the rain just pounded down, and the ground couldn't soak it up quickly enough. but then as soon as the rain cleared, it was a gorgeous afternoon. you would never think that those two pictures were from the same day. but yes, it was such a beautiful afternoon. meanwhile, this is this morning. this one came in actually from phil. he stent in around 5:15, i feel like it looks like an alien is landing or something? he has a green sheen on the road surface here. but more than anything he sent this in to point out the fact that there is a lot of clouds that have gun to build in the chestnut hill section of the city. going to a format of some of the temperatures right now as well, just quickly go over these one more time. mid 40's what you walk out the door tonight so expect to need an extra layer. certainly, if you are hitting the ballpark here today for the phillies home opener the team sweatshirt definitely
smart idea as well, it will be chilly. but with that said, let's take a look what the pattern is up to. with time we do actually start to rebounds very nicely. and very efficiently. but today is the chilly day. wouldn't you know, home opener. but from here on out those phillies game will get more and more comfortable. see the wrap around moisture taking place, in fact, cold enough to actually support some snow back across northwest pennsylvania, but we will also see few showers here, locally, in the poconos perhaps few snowflakes mixed in, you won't have to deal with any kind of accumulation. and then, high pressure, waits in the wings, as that high builds east, we are going to not only see more and more sunshine, but warm up from this point forward. so, quickly, bringing it back to this afternoon, as our phils are at home for the first time, there could be stray shower. it is not going to be a wash out. they're going to play, and again i would say the winds is most noticeable, as the chill is. those are the two things that you want to take into account here if you are headed out to the ballpark, really anything that you have got going on here today. if you have got to be outside for extended periods of time,
you're not prepared with extra layering, that will be noticeable. it is going to be chilly afternoon. fifty-two at 3,051st pitch. i think we will actually hit 53 at best here today. around that same time. and then, boy it, do the hit keep rolling? are you kidding me? i ended upgoing to 79 for tuesday. that's my personal favorite. you can all understanded why, we have a string of sunny days here, tomorrow, still little breezy, still only 58. so little on the cool side. but nice day. and then we rebounds to the upper 60s, sunday, basically repeat of last sunday, monday and tuesday, oh, talk about kim of gems before our next cold front comes along to knock us back, so little closer to reality, meisha, not bad. >> no, i never look forward to a monday and tuesday, now i can't wait. i can't wait for tuesday, in general. all right, delaware county, 95 north at 45 2-6r789 take it all the way up to the airport, basically what we're looking at. looking good. any camera shot that we are looking at this morning is looking good. starting to builds levels
little bit in certain places like the schuylkill or other busy places but overall things are looking good. look at this gorgeous shot, skies, just absolutely perfect, the blue, against the roadways, almost look like almost a yellow green color. just actually gorgeous. the boulevard headlight moving in the southbound direction approaching wissahickon avenue. all about capturing those little things. this camera, speaking of capturing, stuck, 422, taillights eastbound direction approaching oaks, that sky gorgeous as well, but they do say take a picture it, will last longer, there with your picture, by the way, nfl draft, it is coming to philly. the art museum steps, so many people real excited about this, phase one starts on machine day by the way, and how will this affect you? we will have lanes blocked in these areas. eakin's oval, ben franklin parkway, kelly drive, web spring garden street. heads up again phase one starting monday. it will affect you, slow us down little bit. the draft is april 27th through the 29th, thursday through saturday, so just a heads up. it is coumarin way very, very
